Product Summary & Specs

Bumper plates have become a staple to home gym owners as they offer users durability, versatility, low bounce and reduced noise levels when compared to iron plated weights. The best bumper plates for your home gym are the ones that offer quality at an affordable price, and the Wright AMP Bumper Plates are perhaps the most affordable American-made bumper plates on the market. 

Sold in pairs, the plates range in price from a mere $18 for the 5-pound plates to $1,296 for the 1,000-pound set, which is a hard price point to beat. Meeting ACFT specifications, these plates are 450 millimeters in diameter and come equipped with 2-inch stainless steel inserts which appropriately distributes pressure when dropped. 

Wright claims to use drop testing on all weights they produce. All 25- to 55-pound plates are tested to exceed 20,000 drops from a 6-foot height while the 10- and 15-pound plates are dropped over 7,000 times to ensure durability and a low noise level with a dead or no bounce. As such, they can be used for Olympic lifting, power lifting or functional fitness exercises. The Wright AMP Bumper Plates are made from recycled rubber yet maintain a smooth finish. 

It should be noted that while recycled rubber is not as strong or malleable as virgin rubber, the AMP bumper plates receive incredibly high user reviews which overwhelmingly speak to their durability. Some reviews do note the plates leaving a black mark on hands or the gym floor but that can be expected when using recycled rubber.
